How do I submit a peer review to a discussion?

Your instructor may require you to submit a peer review of another student's discussion reply. To complete the peer review, you must review the student's discussion reply and add a comment in the comment sidebar.

If your instructor includes a rubric, which is a pre-determined outline of how an assignment is graded, you must also assign a grade using the rubric.

Discussion peer reviews cannot be anonymous.
